  • A day in the garden

    By Dr. David B. Whitlock

    I carefully dropped the seeds into the ground, spacing them 12-18 inches apart, per directions.
    “Now, Dr. David, I’m not meticulous like you are. I know you want them in 1 inch of dirt. But, I’m not going to get down on the ground and cover the dirt over them with my hands. I just use my foot for that, like this,” Martha, said, demonstrating how she gently covered the seeds in the soil.
    “That’s fine, Momma Martha, whatever you say.”

  • Farmers are furiously busy in the fields

  • Summer is sweeter with sweet corn

    Sweet corn is a favorite among home vegetable gardeners. Improved hybrid cultivars are easy to grow. They yield well, taste sweeter, and store longer than old time cultivars. Sweet corn is best adapted to larger gardens since only one or two ears are produced per plant and several rows are recommended to ensure adequate pollination. However, even small plantings can be successful if planted in blocks rather than rows.

  • How to control flea beetles in your garden

    After the heat-wave in mid-May flea beetles seemed to have settled on just about everything I had growing in the garden. Bok choy, potatoes, tomatoes and turnips looked as if they were shot full of tiny holes! I pick and squish and drown but that doesn’t really work with the tiny flea beetle. As you know I do not use chemical pesticides in the vegetable garden. I will reach for a bio-insecticide if I must, however. Bio-insecticides include plant oils and compounds, naturally occurring bacteria, viruses and protozoa. We are essentially using nature to eat nature.

  • Celebrate Memorial Day weekend with burgers and homemade ketchup

    Okay, she’s lost her mind. She’s going to have recipes for BURGERS in her column!

    Well, yes I am. We’ve got a holiday weekend coming up. Lots of people will be grilling burgers, and I just got a new cookbook. It’s called “The Burger,” and features 100 recipes for burgers, along with recipes for homemade ketchup and homemade mustard. Now, I know most cooks can make a hamburger, but some of these are quite different.
